Alicat launched the world's first mass flow controller range for bioreactors, the BIO Series: Proven Mass Flow Performance for Bioprocess & Bioreactor Applications.
The Alicat BIO Mass Flow Controllers (MFCs) were specifically built for professional engineers involved in bioreactor construction and upstream or downstream processes. Their features are tailored to meet the unique demands of the bioprocessing/biopharmaceutical industry.
The BIO series MFCs are very resistant. 316L stainless steel construction of flow bodies and elements is standard.
Also, the units USP Class VI FDA-grade corrosion resistant elastomers prevent contamination of fragile bioreaction environments. in addition to that, every unit is certified to be free of any animal-derived components.
The modern colour display allows for quick understanding of the status of your processes with just one glance.
Two other innovative features of the BIO Series provide new ways to monitor the health and reliability of your gas flow process:
"Drive Display" - allows you to monitor process reliability;
"Gas select" - which allows the MFC to be used with CO2, Air, O2, N2 or over 100 other gasses with no loss of precision or need for recalibration.
Applications: Optimising Biologics and Bioreactor Production, High Flow Control for Gasification, Aerobic vs Anaerobic Wastewater Treatment
The BIO Series has a wide range of build options (such as IP66 ingression protection), process connections, protocols and digital interfaces (high-speed EtherCAT or EtherNet/IP) to match nearly every imaginable bioreactor design. Download the Brochure and the Full Specification Sheet to see the options available.
This means that every BIO series unit ensures that fragile bioreactions remain undisturbed by contaminants introduced by your mass flow control systems. Be sure to read this article on Why Elastometers Matter in Bioreactors, which discusses why this is a critical concern for professional bioprocess engineers and how to address it.
